Dear El Monte Union Community,

I am beyond excited for 2020 – a new decade in which our students will continue to achieve their potential, our teachers and staff will cultivate a college-going culture and our parents and community partners will stand by our side as we support students in all of their endeavors.

On behalf of the District, I also want to recognize our guidance counselors for their dedicated efforts to helping El Monte Union students achieve academic success and plan for the future with National School Counseling Week, celebrated Feb. 3-7.

As we enter February, I want to invite our students, families and staff to our inaugural Lunar New Year, taking place Feb. 12 at Grace T. Black Auditorium, where we will celebrate culture, diversity and unity.

We are also thrilled to share with you that we are recipients of a $9.8 million state grant to bring zero-emission vehicles, programs and education to our community! It was a very competitive grant, but one that we felt important to pursue, particularly for our community, which falls within the top 25% of disadvantaged communities impacted by pollution.

We have so much wonderful news to share, including in this January update and our Winter Newsletter, which should arrive to your homes soon. Also, be sure to follow our District Facebook page and stay up-to-date on what's happening in our schools!
